IEEE NPSS Young Professionals Symposium

Tuesday, May 23, 2017 @ 6:30 PM

The purpose of this special IEEE NPSS Young Professionals Symposium is to help connect and enhance interactions among young professionals and potential employers. All students and young researchers (defined as less than 10 years after the completion of Bachelor degrees) who submit abstracts to ICOPS 2017 are invited to present a poster at the symposium, but they can also present at the regular ICOPS 2017 oral and poster sessions in addition. The event will be open to all ICOPS 2017 attendees but special efforts will be made to invite potential employers to be there to meet with students and young researchers to facilitate potential job interviews and hiring at or after ICOPS 2017. We encourage the young professionals to bring with them a CV so that it is available upon requested. Buffet style light dinner and drinks will be served at the event.

Zwicker has served on several national committees on education, is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and The American Association of Physics Teachers has named him to its list of 75 leading contributors to physics education. He is the past Editor of the APS Forum on Physics and Society's newsletter and a past chair of that Forum. Zwicker is the first physicist ever elected to the NJ Legislature where he serves on the Judiciary, Telecommunications and Utilities, and Regulated Professions committees.  His legislative focus is on increasing NJ's innovation economy and growing high-tech 21st century jobs for people of all education backgrounds.
